Is there a README indicating that the MAJOR/MINOR version tests for this
particular tarball are not relevant/complete?  No.

This is not a snapshot.  It is labeled httpd-2.3.4-alpha.tar.xx release.
You surely don't misunderstand what I said.

As for broken versioning rules, please take that to APR.

Perhaps in retrospect, APR would consider an even/odds approach as httpd
has for adding (even eliminating) interfaces during a development cycle.
